It isn't a reason to write off a game. But that's my point.

 

Now, the concept art looks better but the acual models? There's the one girl with the huge eyes, egg shaped head and weird nose.

 

I'm sorry, that girl actually looks way worse than Elma and people say her face is horrible.

(The boy character does not look bad though, I do like the way his design is)


I know Wii U can handle better graphics than that. I've seen it. I'm kinda disappointed in some of the character models. But, game's aren't so much about graphics I suppose. I prefer cel shaded for anime.


The character models aren't graphic related. They are design related.

Look at Bayonetta.

How was Star Ocean 4? My PS3 copy still in shrink wrap.


When people complain about SO4, it is never because its a bad game. It just VA's and Story. The game and the content that comes with it is a full course meal, like all tri-Ace games. 

That's not all of it ColdPhire.

Even so, just the story. You know, like one of the biggest elements in RPGs.

Horrible design is still bad and is worth criticism. That girl doesn't look human (if those really are her ears), which is why her anatomy is as it is. That at least makes some sense.



I think its interresting that we playstation owners get a similiar game like Xenoblade chronicles X, i hope star ocean 5 can compete with xeno.



I almost feel asleep watching that fucking thing, then I skipped to the end and saw a big fucking logo, just a fucking logo, then it's also on PS3, guess it's not time for a PS4 yet.

Star Ocean will never be anything like X, because they are just very different at the core, SO combat has always been Tales oriented for one, and more like classic JRPG in the exploration aspect, and I doubt this one will be different.



The pink hair girl is not human, that is why she looks like a doll, if that makes any sense. It still looks better. Believe it!

It is no secret most people hate the SO3 plot twist. Many were disappointed when S04 did nothing to rectify it. It looks like SO5 will continue that. If you had to write your way out of SO3 plot twist, how would you do it? Or if you like it or it didnt bother you, how should they move forward?


SO4 couldn't rectify anything as it's a prequel. SO5 takes place between 2 and 3 so it's unlikely to do anything either.

SO3 rectified its own twist anyway. By the end of the game it doesn't matter that the SO world is a MMORPG. The characters are clearly sentient, and the SO world was divided from the 4D one. You see in the epilogue that the characters are living in their world same as always. Don't know what else you could do to rectify it.

Even if this game took place after SO3, they wouldn't even have to reference the twist at all. Just set up the conflict with no relation to SO3's twist.




Soriku you really should spoiler tag that for people new to the series.



Never played a Star Ocean game before. I might pick this up when it releases. But my backlog already has too many games..
